This is St. John's curve: http://www.stjohns.edu/academics/graduate/law/current/gradenormalization.stj
This seems to be a B/B+ curve (47% get a B or lower), which isn't all that bad. It certainly is not a fail curve.
Edit: After doing some searching I found a school (Cal Western -- Cooley's curve wasn't posted) that has something that is pretty close to a fail curve. http://www.cwsl.edu/content/academic_notices/student_handbook.pdf Scroll down to page 22.
The other way to determine the toughness of a school's curve is to view JD attrition on LSAC. The higher the number under academic attrition, the tougher the curve.
can you provide more details? Are you a traditional (from ug) student? Anything spectacular in terms of soft factors/extra curricular? Are you in state? Are you a urm? Thanks for the info.
No, they don't rank their waitlist.
I am always baffled when people maintain that waitlists aren't ranked. Do adcomms pluck out people at random? No, of course not, they know some people on the list are better candidates than others and eventually call applicants up, one-at-a-time, in an order that they see fit.
